As one of the most historic buildings on the Island, the Doucet House is the oldest house on Isle St. Jean (Prince Edward Island). In 2022 the Doucet House celebrated its 250th Anniversary.
The house was originally situated on Grand-Père Point (Cymbria) and was continually inhabited by descendants of Doucet families until 1982 when it was acquired by John Langdale who used it as a summer residence. When the latter decided to build a new home on the site, he stated his intention to either demolish it or give it to a person or party who would move it to another site. The Friends of the Farmers’ Bank accepted the offer, and the house was moved to a site adjacent to the Bank in December 1999. The house had originally been used on occasion as a place of worship at a time when there was no church or other suitable building available in the early days of the colony. The house was fully restored in 2003 with many period antique furnishings. The official opening was held on June 29, 2004.
